Taking a look at the card, you can see the Twin Frozr IV cooler that covers almost the entire PCB. The two large fans sit over a massive heat sink, and we've got some copper heat pipes throughout the card that help pull the heat off the core.
The new Maxwell chip has proven to perform well when it comes to heat, and it will be interesting to see how the numbers look with this much larger cooler.
Taking a look around the card, we again don't have an extra power connector or an SLI connector. We do have a switch towards the back of the card, though, which lets us switch between two BIOSes. One mode is Hybrid, while the other is Legacy.
The Hybrid BIOS does have some computability issues, but if it does work, then you get a faster start up and resume from hibernation. Legacy, on the other hand, has no compatibility issues but is a little slower in booting up.
Finishing up our look at the card, we can see the I/O side of things, which has an interesting setup. While the Dual-Link DVI-D and HDMI aren't much of a surprise, the inclusion of a D-SUB VGA connector is.
Honestly, this won't be too much of an issue for a lot of people as most will be using the DVI or the HDMI port on just a single monitor. The inclusion of a VGA connector, though, is a little weird and a bit of a blast from the past.
As we mentioned on the first page, the MSI GTX 750 Ti 2GB Twin Frozr Gaming is an OC model, and, looking below, you can see that MSI has done a pretty good job with the core. The reference clocks on the GTX 750 Ti 2GB are 1020MHz on the core and 1085MHz via boost. Looking below, you can see that MSI has pushed the default core clock to 1085MHz. The boost clock is then pushed even higher to 1163MHz.
In typical fashion, you can see that the 2GB of GDDR5 memory has been left alone at 5400MHz QDR. Most companies choose to concentrate on the core as it brings with it the biggest boost in performance. The core clock is strong and should bring with it a decent performance boost.
